  1. Nice to drive out, don’t do it often enough. Left on track settings and drop in temps for the Cup 2’s and every rut makes itself known but dial it back to road setting and the 430 will be brilliant again. It’s the only car I’ve ever had the changing shock setting has ever made a real world difference. Thanks as always for organising and look forward to Pearce’s, I believe that’s the next venue? Trevor.
  2. I never had a problem and certainly quieter than a V6. Mine was 2017. Trevor.
  3. @changes fitted mine so he will be able to answer as to whether there were issues with the Nitron’s. Trevor.
  4. You’d be wise to go with the Nitron’s, I feel the LOTAC suspension is a poor under developed refresh of the original. Ride and handling on my Sport 350 was excellent with the advantage of ride height adjustment too. Trevor.
  5. Great little cars and a better choice than a Cayman, drives better but lower quality feel to it. I’d have one if the prices dropped a bit. i can’t reply to Internets as I’m still laughing that Sparky claims to have a mate Trevor.
  6. Can't think what you mean? Trevor.
  7. Ooh, V6 Cup, great cars and perfect for the Job. Trevor.
  8. And from memory it’s £275. Trevor.
  9. That's with Silverstone? £479, not cheap but £100 less than Goldtrack yesterday. Not sure I'll make that as intending to do Castle Combe on the 10th with B&C. Trevor.
  10. Hi Mark, great looking car, like Jonny, had a great time in my Exige Cup and fully expecting the 430 Cup to be a hugely enjoyable track car. Trevor.
  11. Donnington do noisy days but as Bibs said, Silverstone is probably your best bet. You need to back off momentarily past the meters and you’ll be fine there. You’d be ok at Castle Combe too, tracks to avoid would be Brands Hatch, Bedford and possibly Snetterton in terms of noise. Trevor.

    I have the Lotus Track Exhaust on my GT430 and very pleased with it, even more so since the B&C Goodwood day due to no issues at all. Personally I think it’s more fitting on a car to have a Lotus supplied item albeit circa £700 more than something like The 2bular. Trevor.
  13. Are you running a standard intake system? If you have filters bolted straight to the carbs then that’s usually the problem as it will be taking in hot air from the engine bay. Trevor.

    They do have to be serviced every two years according to the manual but in reality I’d think you’d do it in year two to keep the warranty but after that they would be much the same as any other shock and attended to as and when you see/feel a difference. I think it partly allows for a fair amount of track use but also the seals are either thinner or perhaps not there at all in order to keep friction as low as possible given the application. Trevor.
  15. I believe the V12 that’s in it isn’t going in the production car but don’t know for certain. Outside looked pretty good but seemed a little less pleasing in the flesh for me. Likewise I’ve now seen the interior and agree it a bit Jules Verne. Trevor.
  16. Looks good, sounds good and a bit of Alfa 33 Stradale in the mix, I like. Trevor.
  17. Good work and well done. I have a bit of a hankering for an S3 N/A and prefer the S2 lines. Trevor.
  18. The two front PS2's for my GT430 which I assume are the same size were £550 fitted inc VAT. I know you don't want those but an example. Think a pair or rears are £750. Trevor.
  19. At Goodwood for the Bell & Colvill track day but should be able to come up straight after. Trevor.
  20. Glad you got where you wanted to noise wise. Can I ask what the cost of this is? Trevor.
  21. So you’re the fruit loop who can’t stop himself :-). Seen your car on a few occasions, very nice and quite an undertaking, hope it lives up to expectations. Trevor.
